X470 motherboard

Hi all

I’ve built a new pc this week and while I’m waiting for my new graphics card coming I’m using my faithful 980 ti.
With the pc spec being a lot higher than my old one I thought I’d overclock the card until my new one arrives. Ive done it to this card before successfully so didn’t hesitate.
I used MSI Afterburner for the oc. I upped the power limit to the max and applied a 100 MHz overclock and the pc ran sweet though the Unigine Heaven benchmark. I then upped it to 150 and again alls well. When I upped it to 200 MHz heaven crashed and the pc froze also . I shut down with the power button and then rebooted. All I get is a black screen. Can’t get into bios, don’t see anything on screen. Just black all the time. Doesn’t show login screen or the mb logo.Nothing.
The VGA status light on the motherboard is on constantly as it tries to boot.

I’ve tried the 980 ti in my old system and it works ok
I’ve taken the cmos battery out for 24 hours to no avail.
Tried 1 bank of memory and swapped them over. No change

Specs

Gigabyte X470 gaming 7 WiFi
Ryzen 2700x stock
2x8 gig of Gskill 3200 MHz trident z
NZXT Kraken x62 aid cooler
EVGA 750 Watt Supernova G2

Please help 😱

Greetings,
Late reply..  I hope you've received your new card and were able to recover your system.  I was going to suggest testing with another card, which again, I hope worked for you.  Given the horsepower of your kit, OC is not really needed or necessary.
